Christmas News Update from Kirkcaldy Nursery

Posted by | Kirkcaldy | No Comments

December was a very busy month at Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy nursery. One of the main events in our calendar every year is the Nativity Play. This year it was performed at the company’s new Head Office building in Kirkcaldy, where there is room for all parents and other relatives who want to see the children perform to attend. There are some lovely photos of the Nativity in the second part of our Newsletter which can be downloaded below.

We had the Nursery Christmas Party (held at our Head Office too) on Sunday 17th December. Below are the staff who helped out at the party.

We also had a Christmas jumper day and cake sale to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Charity in memory of Melissa Crouch. This raised £92.60 and we would like to thank everyone who contributed towards our fund raising.

Building A Den

Posted by | Kirkcaldy | No Comments

Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy now has an exciting den for the children to play in when they are out in the nursery garden. They were delighted to accept some pallets from Resin Drives, a local company. One of the parents helped to fix them together and we used floor mats for the children to sit on.

The children just love this new den and have been using it for role play, story time and also a place to sit when they have a snack outside.

Celebration Time for Irene, Careen and Kareena

Posted by | Kirkcaldy | No Comments

Three of the staff at Little Einsteins Nursery in Kirkcaldy had reason to celebrate last week. Careen Bradford (Room Leader), Irene Carstairs (Nursery Manager) and Karena Honeyman (Early Years Practitioner) have all been at the nursery for 10 years this month. On Friday 11th August the ladies celebrated this special anniversary with the children. They held an indoor barbeque (yes, it was raining that day!) and Irene made a cake for everyone to share.

The ladies each received gifts of flowers, sweets, candles and a bottle of wine from the rest of the staff. They are pictured with their certificates of achievement.

Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy Nursery Graduates

Posted by | Kirkcaldy | No Comments

Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy Nursery held their annual graduation ceremony last week for the pre school children who will be leaving soon to start primary school in August. As usual, as well as the Graduation ceremony, the children performed a concert for their parents and families and this year’s theme was “Down on the Farm”. The children sang songs about animals and dressed up as different farm animals.

A few residents from Methven House and Camilla House nursing homes were invited to attend and thoroughly enjoyed being part of the celebration.

Eco Award Resized

Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy’s Eco Schools Green Flag Award

Posted by | Kirkcaldy | No Comments

It’s official!! Little Einsteins Kirkcaldy have achieved their Green Flag Award after two years hard work. The confirmation came just before Kirsty Haston, the nursery’s Eco-Coordinator, went on maternity absence so the timing couldn’t have been better.

Local MSP David Torrance popped in to the nursery to offer his congratulations. He was shown the work that the nursery has done in order to achieve the award which includes working at the allotment and planting trees in one of Kirkcaldy’s parks, litter picking and being part of the “Clean for the Queen” as part of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.

During Kirsty’s maternity absence Kelly will oversee the Project with the children.

The babies have been looking at mini beasts. They painted caterpillars with their toe prints and painted leaf shapes.


The boys and girls in the Inventors room have been growing sunflowers in yogurt pots. They watered them regularly, watched them grow and when they were big enough they took them home to transplant in their own gardens and will measure them to see how tall they grow.
